I got my mini today from my brother, and I am looking into an indirect setup. Since the firering is cracked, I was considering getting a second firering, and adding the newer 10" grid as well. I was wondering if anyone has tried two firerings and two cooking grates for an indirect setup? So from the bottom to the top you would have:
my old firering
drip pan in space new firering creates
food (a few thighs, handful of wings, etc ..)
Am I too high into the dome on this setup? I also looked at the ceramicgrillstore setup for the mini, and while I like it, it would cost more than the setup I outlined (56+ shipping, plus 30 to amazon for stones). A new firering is ~30 last time I checked with my dealer, and I cant imagine the 10" grate is very costly. I can afford either solution, but I am just keeping the peace with my wife since I need to spread out my bbq purchases to keep her happy
Thanks guys, I appreciate all of your ideas and input. I am open to all solutions, pics are welcome if you got em.
PS - I switched me small to an expanded metal fire grate that I made, and it helped a ton, I may do the same on this as it has a thicker ceramic fire grate. Anyone do this on the mini?
